A Gifted Man 1.16 “In Case of Heart Failure” Review
It is predicted that this episode of A Gifted Man will be the last one we see, which is a direct result of its bad ratings throughout this season on the CBS network, and as for the details of the show, we see Michael getting all dressed up in order to attend an award ceremony where he is supposed to get honored for his work and researches. As for Kate she has been trying to bring the fling they had, but Michael keeps ignoring her and gives her a deaf ear.
And when the time came, and he was taking his award, he noticed that Gene is sweating badly and he ends up fainting in the middle of the ceremony, he claims that it was a mild case of jetlag, with his temperature going sky high up to 102, which results in Gene taking an Aids test, but he refused and told him that he hasn’t slept with Trish, but things oscillate and he ends up in the OR in the emergency intubation. After tests and examination we discovered that Gene had a diffused rhonchi accompanied by liver failure. To make it simple, his kidneys were closing down. The reason for it turned out to be a lesion infection that Trish and Gene had, and he comforts them by telling them that the cure is easy.
And now onto another storyline which was linked to Louise, she tells her story to Kate, because she had a series of events that ended in a swollen foot, she does x-rays and examinations, and meanwhile she tells Kate that she had undergone heart surgery. So Kate does a blood panel and she refused to tell her that her heart came from Anna, but she tells Michael.
The rest of the show included hardship in Kate’s live as she and Michael talk about the kiss they had last episode, which spurs a lot of tension and problems. And more into Kate’s life as she and Harrison had a fight concerning Harrison not being available back at home, and she was criticizing his actions. And she tells Zeke that her marriage is hanging by a thread, and she isn’t having any good hopes about their near future, concerning her marriage. And job offers made things worse, as Harrison got an offer to work as a CEO in Houston and tells her that she can have her own free clinic at Houston. And in the end, as she told Michael, she decided to stay in New York and work on her marriage instead of taking on the job offer at Houston.
All in all, we felts that Anna wasn’t used enough this season, which was the same case on this episode, she was merely appearing on the show. plus, her character and role haven’t developed throughout the course of the season.
